Menys de 10 empleats equival a un vot, aquells qui donen treball de 10 a 50 nomenen a un votant per cada 5 empleats. Si s'emplea a més de 50 persones han de nomenar a 10 votants i un votant addicional per cada 50 empleats després dels 50 primers. Així que empreses d'1 a 10 persones tenen un vot, una empresa de 10 dos vots, una empresa de 50 deu vots i una empresa de 100 onze vots.
The present system is widely seen as undemocratic{{Fact|data= juliol de 2016}}, but adopting a more conventional system would place the 7,800 residents of the City in control of the local planning and other functions of a major financial capital that provides most of its services to hundreds of thousands of non-residents.
Proposals to annex the City to one of the neighbouring [[London borough]]s, possibly the [[City of Westminster]], have not widely been taken seriously. One proposal floated as a possible reform is to allow those who work in the City to each have a direct individual vote, rather than businesses being represented by appointed voters.
